New Maruti Ertiga Vs Old Ertiga- Design

For instance, it comer with elongated headlamps with projector elements, a sporty looking bumper, sharp character lines on the side profile and a stout looking rear end. In addition to this, the MPV also comes with a very angular tail-lamp design which appears very premium and a class above. In contrast, the older spec version comes with a curvaceous design which though premium has now started to look a bit dated.
New Maruti Ertiga Vs Old Ertiga- Interiors
As with the case with the exterior profile of the new Ertiga, the interiors stand completely revamped as well. They are no longer the exact copy of the MPV’s hatchback and sedan siblings and hence get their unique layout. However, it still shares some components with the Dzire. While the older generation models came with a complete black dashboard colour scheme, the new iteration is going to feature a dual-tone colour scheme of black and beige. In addition to this, Maruti could also include the leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob along with complete leather upholstery on the top-spec trims. Furthermore, in contrast to the water-flow design of the dashboard of the older version of the MPV, the new one gets a more streamlined design which looks quite a lot contemporary.
